As part of Re-Building Europe, a workshop takes place in Copenhagen on August 31, 2023.
Copenhagen was among the first cities to set up a strategic plan to achieve carbon neutrality, resulting in an 80% decrease since 2009, and it has become one of the most cited cases for its urban planning and infrastructure. In 2023, UNESCO named Copenhagen the 2023 World Capital of Architecture, prompting an array of architecture-focused events and festivals. Despite this the architects and urbanists who are building Copenhagen’s future skyline face some social, cultural and geographical challenges. Denmark’s highest natural point (Møllehøj) is 171 meters above sea level.
